This means we can start immediately and since there are some spaces during May we would particularly welcome anyone who could spend a week on the island (Monday to Monday) this month. The work is done in pairs and each team needs some knowledge of birds and familiarity with Excel, so if you are interested please could you get in touch asap with Phil Blatcher (firstname.lastname@example.org 01992 441024) who is co-ordinating the work on the bird logs, to let him know which week you could do, as well as giving him some idea of your expertise with birds and Excel.
